Golden Gate Bridge

I collect bridge cards and this is one of my favourites. As an interest note: it was photographed in the USA, printed in Korea and sent by rsaloranta from Finland! That’s what I call globalization!

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge built between 1933 and 1937 over the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean. It is an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and it was designed by a group of architects and engineers lead by Joseph Strauss (overall design) and Irving Morrow (bridge towers and Art Deco elements).

Sadly, it’s one of the most popular sites to commit suicide in the world and there are suicide hotline telephones all over the bridge.
